Fishing Vancouver For Sturgeon
Fishing in Vancouver?….really, you can Sturgeon fish right in Vancouver? These are some of the common remarks we hear all the time from people visiting the Vancouver area.
Who would ever imagine that some of the world’s best Sturgeon fishing grounds are right in the greater Vancouver area. Whether you live in the area or are visiting Vancouver and are looking at spending a fun and super-exciting day of fishing on the world famous Fraser River, we highly recommend this trip. A short 30-45 minute drive from the downtown core will land you at the Port Mann Bridge (check our map & directions for details) where you can access prolific Sturgeon fishing grounds in as little as a few minutes from the boat launch. From here, you will have access to more than 40km of prime Sturgeon fishing water. Along your river travels, you will see and learn how humans interact with nature in a fine balance, and how the river is utilized by the different groups of people that live and work in this area.
In order to accommodate your schedule we offer 4, 6, 8 and 10 hour outings for this trip. This area offers consistent Sturgeon fishing year-round, but does have peak seasons that offer world-class Sturgeon fishing opportunities.
“URBAN FISHING AT ITS BEST”
During peak seasons, the lower river can produce some marvelous Sturgeon fishing, and it’s not uncommon to hook 15-20+ Sturgeon in an 8hr outing. For those visiting the area and are looking to experience a fun and exciting fishing trip, our Vancouver fishing charters for sturgeon are a great option. Fish average in the 3-6ft range, but there are plenty of much larger fish around to give you a very realistic chance of hooking a trophy fish of a lifetime.
The White Sturgeon have an immense amount of power and speed, and are capable of peeling 200yds of line off the spool in seconds. Even though sturgeon are mostly bottom feeders, their fighting ability can be compared to that of any BIG GAME sport fish, and they aren’t referred to the “poor man’s marlin” for nothing. Seeing a huge fish jump out of the water is simply amazing, regardless of species.
